Lots of wind today
Lots of wind today. Fair drifts and a few limits of fluke, but no real big fish today. The pool fish was only 4.10 lbs. Plenty of action though. The blues were relentless. Three to six lb blues were everywhere. Typical of this time of year the blues appear at random, and can affect the flaking when they are around. Luck of the draw!!.
Great fluke fishing
Great fluke fishing all week.Some big fluke and quite a few limits reached.
Jung Kim of Flushing started the week off with a 5.12 and a 5.70 lbr as
well as his limit. Greg Stokes of Riegelsville PA limited and Ronnie Johnson
of Islandia had his limit plus a 5.60lbr. Steve Kellner of Mattituck landed
a 6.90 plus had his limit, and this was just Tuesday. Wednesday had Bob
Dejewski of Riverhead with a 6.35 lbr plus his limit, and Ronnie Giambrone of
Holbrook tipping the scale with an 8.35 lbr. Thursday saw some limits, but
unfortunatly no exceptional fluke. Friday made up for thurs. with John
Vanek of East Islip boating a 10.50 Mammoth fluke, (weighed in officially at
WEGO bait shop in Southold. A good number of limits on Friday as well.
Saturday s rain didn't bother Dong uk lee of Flushing when he landed a 6.10 lbr,
as well as his limit. and those fortunate to be on the Peconic Star on
Sunday (Mothers Day) saw Paul Kimof Bayside Queens land a 7.25 AND a 7.20 lbr
as well as his limit. Mr.#1 from Flushing also had a 7.20 fluke, followed
by Teddy of Westchester with a 7.10 doormat. Needless to say, there were
many other keeper fluke in the 3 to 6 pound league. By far the best bite of
the season so far.
The Porgy trips on the Peconic Star II were awesome with most anglers
hitting their bag limit and most porgies measuring over 15 inches. We will be
fishing for porgies on friday, saturdays and sundays only, as long as the
phenonenal run of big fish lasts.
Phenomenal porgy action today.
All fares limited and kept only porgies over
16 inches. After limiting on scup, the rest of the daywas spent drifting
for blues and fluke.
The Fluke boat had a great day too. A fair amount of limits were caught ,
and on one of the last drifts of the day, John Vanek of east Islip landed a
10.50 lb mammoth fluke, as well as having his limit! His fluke was
officially weighed in at WEGO bait shop in Southold.
Best day of Fluke Yet!
Best bite of the 2013 fluke season so far. All but two fares limited out,
Bob Dejewski's 6.35 led the pool all day till the last drift of the day,
when Ronnie Giambrone of Holbrook stuck a 8.35 gorilla fluke to take the pool.
Lots of action all day. Fishing close to the dock allows for maximum
bottom time! a mix of jumbo porgies and some cocktail blues rounded out the
day.Speaking of porgies, a reminder that we will be porgy fishing Friday
Saturday and Sunday starting this week. Expect porgies up to 4 lbs!!
Not as much action as yesterday due to no wind at all.Two hours of not much
of a drift made the catch tough. Decent shot of fluke in the morning, and
again at the end of the day with a couple of fish just under 6 lbs boated.
John Bow of Tallman NY nailed a 5lb 11oz fluke almous mached b john
causouradis of roslin n wih a 5lb 8oz fla one. firs porg of he season was caught.
A pleasant surprise today. With the cold winter and the cold water temp, we were not expecting a super start to the fluke season. It turned out there was a decent amount of action. More shorts than I would like to see, but we ended up with 32 keeper fluke for 38 anglers. Everyone had some action, and Scott Micciche of Smithtown NY went home with a nice 6lb poolfish.Conditions wrer not fantastic, but were good enough to provide action throughout the day. It's only going to get better from this day forward.
